the Job Interview

Janet Kuypers
written for the 02/15/05 show “How Do I Get There?

    I just got out of college a few months ago. Just got my degree. I feel important now. I know the career I’ve studied for. Now I’ve got to get the job of my dreams.
    I filled out a ton of resumes. Got a few calls back. Now i’ve got my first interview. I’ve got my interview jacket on. I answer all of the questions right.
    I see the offices. I think:
    excuse me.
    This is what I should have.
    Am I doing this right?
    How do I get there?
